Hi,
I second macrium reflect free
I do not create or restore system images inside the os though
I use the winpe recovery media to do both and it's never failed best to get used to using it seeing one day you'll need it
Only quirk is you have to create and name a folder to put the system image in before entering winpe not a big deal

Making a system image in the os has failed before thus why I do not do it anymore.

I'm trying windows backup for now the problem is I lost all my past backups what I wanted to do is get the news and interest widget to show two columns instead of one I thought restoring the system back to before the dev channel would have worked but not those backups where not readable so I deleted them

ive been using it for years and its never once failed
I was using Acronis for years this is the first time it failed me never going to buy it again

I've had some Acronis images get corrupted and stop working. I've since switched to Macrium.

Couldn't revert to the previous win10 instance through the embedded windows restore utility and forced me to get it working by booting into my win7 to restore through acronis true image. :cool:

Why should I? Windows boot menu tool tried to restore itself and failed. Acronis True Image has saved me tens of times until today from reinstalling the OS.

I've always found Acronis to be garbage. I use this one, which works very well.

Tried Acronis recently and its bootable media locked up on my system.

Recent versions of Paragon are no good neither. Unstable and miss a lot of useful features.

I recommend using older version of Paragon (v15) or Active@ Disk Image.

More information on why it is failing would be helpful. Did you try to restore using the restore media booted from a USB flash drive? Did you make sure the drive you are trying to restore to is healthy?
